ADECAT’s calibration metrology laboratory calibration metrology laboratory is ready to calibrate and test a broad range of the tools and instruments used in precision turning workshops.


The laboratory guarantees the traceability of calibrated devices and issues the corresponding certificate. It therefore provides excellent in-company calibration and ISO 9000-2000 certified service.
